Kathys Special Meatloaf

1 1/4 pounds ground beef or ground turkey 1 jar India Relish 1/2 can corn 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs 1/2 cup apricot preserves 2 eggs salt/pepper Mix all ingredients together just till incorporated. Put in a large meatloaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. I created this recipe for my TJs so we could sell extra bread crumbs. It sold the bread crumbs and everything else. India Relish is my favorite TJs product. It has great flavors that change completely with the ingredients you put it with.

I was visiting from West Virginia and was in Trader Joes' with family when I accepted a sample of meatloaf( of which is far from my favorite food). I tasted this delecious meatloaf upon entering the car, I dashed from the car and back into the store for a printout, but it was writen on a blackboard, out of luck, out of time with family, no time to copy it down. This was in January and I called the Trader Joes' in Austin and got the recipe from Kathy, the demo girl. I was just in heaven, she gladly gave me the recipe, but when she got to Trader Joes' Indian Relish, my heart broke, she said the relish was what gave it the wonderful flavor. She said nothing else could be used. Now will have to PLEAD with my family to go back to Joes' where they shop anyway, but now Plead with them to buy some Trader Joes' Indian Relish and send it to me. And yes it is in glass jars. Had I known all this before departing Santa Ana, My carry on luggage would had noting but as much Indian Relish as I could carry. This is a GREAT MEATLOAF!!!!!!!!!

Did you reserve some of the Apricot preserves to serve as a Meatloaf "glaze" on the top?

I used the ground turkey, and added chopped onions, I used only about 3/4 jar of India Relish (I used the rest with some of the corn and pepper soup) but 3/4 was plenty (India Relish is rich and spicy). I left out the corn (not a favorite of hubbys) I subbed Trader Joe's Japanese Panko crumbs for bread crumbs (I like the lighter texture with Turkey) and I reserved a little bit of the Apricot Preserves to spread on top of the loaf, then when it had baked for 50 minutes or so, I took it out and added the NEW Trader Joe's fried onions (they are better than the Durkee ones) Thanks Kathy great combo of flavors.

I'm not really a cook, but looked for spreads for sandwiches because I was getting tired of turkey and mustard everyday (try to stay healthy) and discovered india relish. Loved it was looking online one day since i was wondering about the nutritional content, did a search on "India Relish" (which shouldn't it be named "Indian Relish?...but I digress) and found the recipe above. I'd never made meatloaf, but I love it and it sounded especially good with the relish, so I made it last night. It was a huge pan, I also threw in some sliced mushrooms - evidence of my "cooking", throwing mushrooms into the spaghetti sauce - and I was like how am I going to eat this all. That was last night, it is now 3pm the following day, and it's gone. Now I did stay home because I have a cold today, but I had it for Dinner, Breakfast and Lunch and it's gone. It's very good and easy to make. Only complaint is that it is a little mushy, so perhaps fewer breadcrumbs or maybe use beef (i used turkey). But I had it with rice last night, and had it as a sandwich today. Anyway this post is long enough...

Went to TJ's yesterday and couldn't find my favorite Indian Relish... well, guess what? Store staff told me it's been discontinued! I am soooo sad about this, as it was a staple in our house. Maybe fans of this yummy relish can plead with them to bring it back?....
